Included will be two theme-based raffle baskets plus some lucky guests will go home with a select bottle of bourbon just for attending! We will also give away 1 Bourbon Chronicles Exclusive Cigar Stave with a Glen Cairn glass and 1 exclusive tasting stave with 3 Glen Cairn glasses. There is limited seating for this experience so buy your tickets before they are sold out!

Blanton’s expressions for the night will be:
